beautiful skyline, stunning landscape... lovely picture that is close to be a wallworthy. But som adjustments would have made it bettter. The horizon is not straight... and I also find the whitebalance a little bit to much blue on the ground part. Getting more of the green from the landscape would have lifted the image. On the mountain there is some purple, that is not looking natural to me. I also find the croping to square for the motive, more panorama would have lifted the image more. I would have made a crop 1/3 below the top of the picture. Scroll down youre browser and see if the dynamic is growing with a tighter crop... :)

I give it 8/10

Outstanding photo! Great composition, exposure, perfect timing. 10/10! You should add it to your gallery because it belongs in the Best Of POTN.

Nice shot. I'm not sure how it would work but if it were cropped to the fishermans boat, the bridge and the church(?) and leaving out what I guess is the tourist boat and the wall it may be better. Then push the colours a bit. It may add a bit more impact that way. 7/10.

I'm ok with this image. My eyes follow the path to the back of the room. Not sure what building it is but it looks cool. And very comfortable in there. Only thing really wrong with the shot is that the lights on the floor are blown out and overexposed. 7/10

Really like this one. I like how the colors of the sky are vibrant without being overdone, that can be tough. I would just push the contrast and saturation here just a smidge to give it a little more punch without overdoing it. And maybe remove that green - possibly portapotty? - from the right of your subject. 8/10.

Took a trip with my wife to Asheville last week. We went to Western North Carolina Nature Center and they had some awesome animals there, got this pic thru dirty glass of a Cougar. 5D + 135L at f2.2.

Very very nice image.
While with shallow DEF still super sharp. Love the eye colors. Love the soft lighting. Love the framing. Great processing.
To me seems the picture is just a touch too warm, just a little.

10/10 for me.

Was going for Inception "Zero" gravity hotel scene, didn't turn out as awesome as I though but whatever, shooting it was fun :-D

I have to preface this by saying I am new to photography so you can totally ignore my opinion.

I can tell a lot went into this, but I'm not "getting" the point of it.. The view seems to be from someone just entering the hotel room and stumbling on this scene (maybe a bad dream?), which I like.

It just seems like a painting would be the more appropriate medium for this, not photography.

I appreciate the quality but this isn't doing much for me.

6/10

Great shot, the bird is well lit and the composition is great. I think you may have over did the blue sky it looks a little off on my screen but maybe its just my screen. I also feel like I would like less intersecting trees but doesnt look like you can do much with the crop other than portrait. Solid 8/10 IMO

Good focus on the eye and subject, very sharp. A little more could be cropped off the left side. The tilt bugs me in this one. I don't know if the exhibit was set up this way or what. 7.5/10

Nice picture, nothing really to complain here.
Great moment captured.
Great focus/sharpness. Not sure if you processed the eyes or not but they look really nice.

Neat. Very beautiful dawn and silhouettes. But nothing that really catches the eye.

8/10

Whoa, that makes me kind of dizzy! Lol! Nice image. Seems well exposed but it looks shopped to me. Maybe you shot it with a rig, but there's too much motion blur for my taste. Still a well executed image though.

One of my very few attempts at landscape photography.

Thanks for the review, the eyes were processed just a little in lightroom, brightened, contrast and saturation up just a little.

Joey, your portraits are truly inspirational. I can tell immediately they are yours. Your processing is very consistent and very good. Not really anything I can pick at on this one! 10/10

Here's my measly image to follow up his.... 5D + 135L. My first family/one year session using this lens.
